  • I had wanted to get into brewing, but never had the space/equipment etc. Then one day a friend goes lets brew. So we did. I had a 12 qt stockpot for making soup stock. We bought an extract kit, and did a partial boil, chilled in a bathtub full of ice, brought to volume, and pitched. I now have a 10 gallon pot that fits over 2 burners of my old gas stove. I do AG BIAB sparaging with my little 12 qt stockpot.

    I'm very interested as well...LOVE ginger. And my 2 cents :) Thick skin ginger is spicier and a
    little bit of hot pepper (maybe in the mash/boil) would help bring out some ginger zing.

    Would you happen to have any pictures? It sounds really good to me. I'm looking for a nice
